Driving Correctly.

Residents in Freeport drive on the left, so if you are importing a vehicle that is right handed, you may need to have this modified. It takes a while to get used to driving on the left but it can be done. Traffic laws in Freeport are similar to that of the U.S or Canada. If you travel to Freeport, the traffic there is very congested. However, if you are used to driving in the city, you will be able to drive anywhere in the Bahamas.

Ship Your Car Freeport

Shipping Method Options

Your car will be imported on a cargo ship. There are two ways you can ship your vehicle. The first is the Roll On/ Roll Off method and the second is the container shipping. With the Roll On/ Roll Off method, the car is driven onto the ship deck where it is parked and harnessed down for the trip. You are not allowed to leave anything inside your vehicle while it's being imported. Once the car reaches the port, your car will be driven off the ship where it will go to customs. If you decide to ship by container, you will load the container with your car and any items you want to bring. The container is then loaded onto the deck of the ship where it is strapped down for the journey.

Taxes that you are Responsible for

When importing/exporting a car to the Bahamas, it can really be expensive. You will be responsible for paying the following taxes according to the value of your car.

  • 45% if your vehicle is valued at less than $10,000
  • 50% if your vehicle is valued between $10,000 and $20,000
  • 65% if your vehicle is valued at more than $20,000

You will also be charged a 7% stamp tax, unless your vehicle will be used for a taxi while over there or if it is part of a fleet for a commercial or public transportation.

If you have paperwork giving you exemption from taxes and duties, you will need to bring this with you.

Documents you need
  • A copy of your purchase invoice.
  • Proof of insurance.
  • Copy of customs declaration form.

Once your vehicle enters the Bahamas, you will need to go to the Road Traffic Department to get it inspected, then licensed and registered. Bring a copy of the documents listed above and the Road Traffic Vehicle Information Form you filled out at the beginning. You will be able to use your driver's license from the United States to drive on for up to three months. By then, you will need to have Bahamian license. Registration fees and inspection will cost you approximately $35. Registration will be estimated based on the weight of the vehicle.

  • BS$160.00 if the vehicle is less than 5,000 lbs.
  • BS$560.00 if the vehicle is between 5,001 and 15,000 lbs.
  • BS$760.00 if the vehicle is more than 15,000 lbs.

Because fees and taxes are ever changing, you will need to contact the Embassy of Bahamas in order to double check the current charges.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

Luis Rodriguez

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
